SVA student creates ViolationReport.org to shame straphangers

Hogging more than one subway seat. Blasting music from an iPod. Leaning up against a subway pole.

 

Inconsiderate straphangers who break these unspoken rules of rail riding are now getting publicly shamed on a new Web site created by a Brooklyn graphic designer.

 

"I'm not asking people to be Mother Teresa," said Grant Gold, 24, creator of ViolationReport.org, where fed-up commuters can upload photos of flagrant etiquette offenders or, if they're brazen, print out a "ticket" to hand out in person.

 

"I'm just saying, don't be a jerk."

How many "creative" people have made sites like this before? Any jackass who hands some one a "ticket" is looking to get their ass kicked.

Everyone wants to be a vigilante nowadays....

 

I'd love to see a jpeg/gif/png/img file of me, on that site, listening to my MP3 player "too loud"....

That'll be the first clown; I meant person, in history to have ever posted an image/photo that actually embeds sounds within it...

 

LMAO...

 

 

wait a minute... I didn't see the part about handing out a ticket....

I wish some wanna be transit cop would hand me some piece of paper telling me I broke some unwritten rule.

Instead of taking photos of people's behavior in the subway and posting it on a website, they should approach the person and tell them what they are doing is wrong. But most of them would be too scared to do so...

With stuff that's been going on like that (D) train and (2) train incident, the last thing I'm going to do is walk up to a stranger and tell them what they're doing is screwed up. I think I'd sooner take my chances snapping a photo and posting it up.
